Genoa appoint Andreazzoli, ending Prandelli's tenure
- Cesare Prandelli has left his post at Genoa, with the Serie A club appointing former Empoli boss Aurelio Andreazzoli as their new coach.
Aurelio Andreazzoli has been appointed as Genoa's new head coach, taking over from Cesare Prandelli.
Andreazzoli led Empoli back to Serie A in 2017-18, though was sacked in November of last year before taking over again in March.
However, the 65-year-old was unable to maintain Empoli's top-flight status, with Prandelli's Genoa staying up courtesy of a better head-to-head record.
But former Italy boss Prandelli's six-month stint at Stadio Luigi Ferraris has now been brought to an end, with Genoa's hierarchy handing Andreazzoli the job on a two-year deal.
